Well somewhere in my piles of "treasures" in my studio I finally found my book creation from LK Ludwig's class at Art & Soul. Although it's not finished (and may be one of those forever ongoing projects) I thought I'd share what I've done so far because I loved creating this. Still needs some work but I think it's starting to come together.
I was very inspired by my classes,the shops and the beauty of Portland. Looking forward to heading back next year and we hope to spend more time at Seaside when there isn't a Tsunami warning :) My cousin Doris came with me, she's a fabulous artist and we have similar tastes so we travel well together. The entire trip was fabulous and we had some wonderful adventures. We stopped at Seaside on our way to Portland and on the way we saw some Tsunami warning signs and joked... what if we were here when a Tsunami hit. Well low & behold when I was in class the next day they mentioned an earthquake had hit and there was a Tsunami warning the day before when we were on the beach. We wondered why it was so quiet there. Doris even got attacked by a surprise wave. Yes we're a couple of blonde's who like to live life on the edge!

I love the ocean and miss it so much since I moved to the prairies almost 3 years ago.
Here I am giving it a big hug!
I sure hope to make it back to Portland next year for Art & Soul and more shopping! I did manage to fit in a bit of shopping in Portland both on vendor night and all I can say is WOW! We also had one day to shop before we left for home so we hit Monticello per Isabel's recommendations. She was busy with family that day so we missed getting together with her but next year hopefully and I hope to catch up with her at the Farm Chicks this year. I loved Monticello and found some lovely finds. I totally recognized Isabel & Lisa'sbooths. Our shopping extravaganza at Monticello!!!
These are my sweet vintage finds!
Just wondering if anyone knows of an on-line photography course? I'm sure it's me and not my camera so I really need to learn how to take better pictures for my blog.
Have a Pretty! day,
